HPMA London Academy Action Learning Set for HRBPs with Nicole Eisele

We are setting up another new Action Learning Set for HR Business Partners. This will be a small group of HR BPs who will meet every 2 months during the year to take an action orientated approach to learning, through working on current work challenges.

If you would like to join this group, please book a place and we will get back to you to confirm the group, once all the places have been filled.

Starting October 2017

What is an Action Learning Set (ALS)?

An ALS is a group – usually six to eight people – who meet at regular intervals to support one another to consider, learn from and determine actions to do with significant and current work related issues. Set members have two primary roles during the meeting: as problem or issue holder when the attention of the set is on their issue; when the attention of the set is focussed on another set member’s issue. ALSs are often facilitated by an external person for an initial period..

How much time is involved?

Set meetings are scheduled every two months and to last for three hours.

Where will meetings be held?

We suggest that members of the set host the meetings and the set could rotate between different member organisations.

Potential Outcomes

• More confidence in taking learning back to the workplace and translating it into action
• The ability to work smarter and find creative ways to bring about change
• Personal impact: Increased awareness of self and others
• Speedier cross-organisational learning and delivery of changes
• Development of advanced coaching skills
• Confidence in using negotiation skills
• Continued high quality dialogue between senior managers outside of the sets resulting in quicker, better problem solving

How are ALS meetings structured?

Please see the document attached to the ALS publicity for more information on how action learning works.
